Unique Splits Extra Dark Pretzels

I don't know if I've ever told you guys this, but pretzels are my favorite food (except I only like the hard kind). Yes, not even just my favorite snack. :) I am always on the hunt for new pretzels. I went through a ton of brands, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.

The "Splits" name comes from the top of the pretzel having a crack down the middle. Who knows? But these pretzels are deelish! They're so dark, they're almost burnt, but in a good way. You've got to like that sort of smoky flavor though.

The Unique Pretzel Bakery in Reading, Pennsyvania creates many different flavors of these Splits. My favorite are the Extra Dark, but I've also had the Cheddar, and Sprouted Multigrain as well. There are even flavors I haven't tried, such as Extra Salt, Jalapeno, Garlic & Onion, and Unsalted versions of each.

All of the pretzels are made using fresh ingredients. Most of the flavors have 110 calories per three pretzels about the size of your palm (or, well, my palm!). The Extra Dark pretzels have 1g of fiber, 3g of protein, and only 2 of fat. Yum!

I love these pretzels, and they're a great change from the regular Rold Gold ones. Pick these up at your local Whole Foods. :D

Price: $3.49 per bag at Whole Foods

    But currently, I am not in homeschooling. My doctors want me to take the semester off to gain weight and what not.

  5. these look awesome, i love pretzels so maybe i'll try them out! :) Thanks girl!

  6. I always thought it was weird how Americans LOVE these pretzels...but I LOVE them mixed with other stuff like nuts and ice-cream or even coating for chicken! :D
    A slightly burnt taste? That actually really does sound GOOD!

  7. oohhhhh these look good! i love jumbo crunchy pretzels - and the flavors sound amazing!

  8. If anything I'm an over planner haha. Thanks for the sweet comment. It probably just looks busier because my lectures are by the hour. I'll probably be doing school stuff for the same length of time as you.

    I always think pretzels are such a uniquely American/Canadian thing. THe only two Irish people that I know that ate them had American or Canadian relations. I'm always confused though. Do big pretzels exist as well? I only know what I know from tv and books lol.
